Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone is infamous for her philanthropic and charitable nature. The actress recently came to an acid attack survivors rescue by donating monetarily for her treatment.
Deepika donated Rs. 10 Lakhs for Chapaak co-star Bala’s kidney transplant. Both of Bala’s kidneys were failing and affected her already weak immunity from surviving an acid attack. The actress donated the amount to a fundraising campaign namely ‘Save Bala’.
Deepika Padukone had worked with Bala in her 2020 film Chapaak. Padukone played the role of an acid attack survivor and Bala shared the screen with the actress in a few scenes.
On the work front, Deepika Padukone is currently shooting for ‘Pathan‘ alongside Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham. It is speculated to release in the latter half of 2022. She is also working on Shakun Batra’s next movie alongside Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday.
Deepika will also be starring opposite Hrithik Roshan in ‘Fighter‘, India’s first aerial action franchise. She will also be seen in her self-produced adaptation of ‘The Intern‘ alongside Amitabh Bachchan.
